Unfortunately, even after restarting X, this did not work. (Since I already
had an appropriate /etc/environment file, I substituted that instead of one
in $HOME.) I also tried to make a menu entry with 'LANG=en_US.UTF-8 konsole'
per Frans Pop's suggestion, but that also did not work.
What does KDE3.3 do differently? I'm planning on upgrading in the next few
days, so if it works there, I can wait a bit.
